The session in which we interview Dr. Arthur C. Evans Jr, the current CEO of the American Psychological Association about the role of psychology in promoting social justice. Dr. Evans chatted with us about his military family, his southern upbringing in Florida, his growth as a leader, and his views on psychology and social justice.
When we interviewed Amanda Spitfire and Roderick Thomas II about their work at Project SAFE in session 27 (A Solid Community of Humans) we also asked Amanda to recite some original poetry.
Amanda chose a couple of excerpts from an intense poem they wrote for March to End Rape Culture/Take Back the Night Philly. Their recitation went beyond the time we could offer in 1 session so we offer it here as a stand alone BONUS.
It is truly a BONUS to hear this!
With Amanda’s permission we shortened the title – the entire title of the poem is:
Rape Culture is… from behind the Mind of a Trauma Counselors Eyes — because my organizing will be intentional or it will be nothing — this is an attempted Intersectional Synopsis of the Effects on Life Raised Under Rape Culture
The session in which we chat with Amanda Spitfire and Roderick Thomas, II, about their work at project SAFE. Project SAFE is a grassroots direct-service and peer-based advocacy organization providing women and femme-centered services with a focus on women working and living in the street economies in Kensington.
